Fold difference in transcription between developmental stages.

This figure displays the relative transcript levels of ace1a and ace1b at 7 different developmental stages of Lepeophtheirus salmonis. The relative expression level of ace1a was significantly higher than ace1b, especially at the copepodid (26 fold) stage and in preadult females (13 fold). The error bars indicate the SD (n = 3) and the experiment was performed in triplicates.
